Animal Encounters

COVID-19 update: All animal encounters have been cancelled until further notice.

Victoria’s Chief Health Officer has advised that due to the size and outdoor-nature of our zoos, they are safe to visit and can remain open as normal. However until further notice, there are some changes to ensure safe social-distancing for visitors and staff, including the cancellation of all animal encounters. We apologise for any inconvenience and look forward to seeing our visitors again safe and well as soon as possible.
